Dear readers,

What comes below is a database of already presented theses worldwide. This database helps you choose your own thesis topic. The Iranian ones can be manipulated using other variables (a different independent or dependent variable). The foreign ones can be either duplicated in an Iranian context or can be used by changing the variables (like Iranian ones mentioned above). I hope you will find it useful. If there's any comment, you can contact me at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Note: Thesis and dissertation authors are invited to send me their topics to be recorded in the database.
